  • Introducing the Qumi Q38; Full HD at 130", Android v6.0 and 2 hour battery

    The New Qumi Q38 HD smart Projector has just landed in stock and because it offers Full HD 1080p, android v6.0 and an inbuilt 2 hour battery we don't expect it to stay in stock long!

    Having full HD 1080p capability in such a small unit is a major breakthrough in the projector industry, many fake products promise full HD but cannot deliver the high resolution offered by the Q38 DLP projector.

    With a massive 10,000:1 contrast ratio the Q38 DLP LED projector can pick out the rich details in your favourite films at levels previously reserved for higher end DLP projectors. It's not just in movies where the Q38 excels, the high resolution, brightness, and contrast ratio all combine to provide a crisp viewing experience for presentations, making it an ideal business companion. The Qumi Q38 can also connect to multiple Bluetooth devices at once for improved functionality, e.g. a keyboard and a speaker.

    Boasting an impressive operating system with its Android V6.0 the Qumi Q38 LED projector can easily download and access a huge library of current apps, expanding it's capabilities depending on your preferred use. Why not use it for projection mapping, star gazing maps, gaming, and more?

  • Alternatives to: Epson EB-S41 - Portable SVGA 3LCD Projector

    The Epson EB-S41 - Portable SVGA 3LCD Projector is evidently sold as a portable lamp projector, but what are the alternatives for people that want a pocket sized powerhouse instead of another laptop box in their bag?

    Epson's offering is certainly bright at a 3300 lumens (if you're not sure what this means click here) and has plenty of connectivity options, but standing on the scales at 2.3kg Epson's SVGA projector weighs as much as a standard laptop, and is chunkier to boot.

    The PIQS TT WiFi Projector

    If you're looking for a projector that can handle presentations with ease the PIQS TT WiFi projector has you covered. This portable wifi projector has an interactive remote and Android onboard so you can download apps and manipulate your any on screen data with ease.

    The auto keystone feature and inbuilt battery also alleviate any unnecessary set up, just pop it down, turn it on and the screen adjusts automatically to the optimal size, all without being connected to a power supply.

    The Pico Genie M550 Plus Portable Projector

    If space is tight and you need something bright, the Pico Genie M550 Plus portable projector is an ideal and versatile projector for business or leisure. With short throw capability this LED pico projector delivers a larger image at a smaller distance compared to standard throw models. This means you don't need as much space to create your ideal big screen experience.

    With it's LED light source you wont have to worry about maintenance, unlike lamp projectors, this projector has a light source lifespan of 20,000 hours! And with android on-board you can spend those hours with whichever apps you choose!

    At 650 Ansi Lumens ( what are those) the M550 Plus LED DLP projector can handle ambient light with ease, making it a viable choice for the office, but crucially you can take it anywhere with ease. Weighing in at only 890 grams even with its whopping 3 hour battery life this powerful projector is ideal for true portability, move night doesn't have to be indoors after all!

    The Qumi Q8

    The Epson may have the high brightness useful for a large conference room,  but realistically the 1000 ansi lumens delivered by the Qumi Q8 portable projector are enough to cope with almost any lighting environment the portable projector will encounter. That's not all though, the Qumi Q8 DP LED Projector boasts a FULL 1080p Resolution, the smallest projector to currently offer those rich visuals!

    The Verdict

    There a plenty of more portable projectors out there, the Epson may be solid choice if you don't fancy moving your projector once it's set, but if you're looking for something more versatile all the above projectors are excellent alternatives.

  • Top 10 Novel & Unique New Applications For Portable Projectors & LED Displays

    Projectors are not just useful for business or home cinema these days – they have an endless list of uses and applications! Here are 10 of the more innovative uses of projectors and LED displays we’ve seen in the last few weeks ranging from projecting  recipes from a barcode in the kitchen to hiding projectors in places to create works of art, a snazzy lounge or a 4k perfect home cinema!

    Read on for our countdown of ten of the best...

    #1. Tasty Recipes

    Want to get tasty recipes for your food? A new gesture controlled pico projector concept hides inside a lamp in the kitchen. Just scan the barcode and it projects the recipe on the kitchen worktop.

    #2. Hiding in the Lounge

    #3. The (Pico) Genie is in the Lamp

    It's amazing what you can fit inside a light these days to create interesting displays in the home or office or just as pieces of art. Pico projectors have got really small now and ultra bright so your applications are endless.

    #9. Navigation

    Need your satnav to get around? It’s commonplace these days but it can be distracting to keep looking down to your dashboard, especially in the winter months when you can face fog and ice! Projection can be used to project a Heads Up Display (HUD) of your dashboard directly onto a part of your windscreen, giving you your dashboard and satnav directions while letting you keep your eyes on the road.

  • Personal Projector Ltd Exhibiting At BETT 2017 (Acer, Philips, Vivitek)

    The biggest technology show in the UK's education sector is just around the corner and we're delighted to say we'll be attending the BETT Show for the fourth straight year. If you're attending, come and say hi - we'll be in Hall 15, at stand F354. Our focus this year is on great projector deals and portable interactivity, which could revolutionise the way you think about your interactive whiteboard. We're also have deals on large format displays (LFDs), new short throw portable projectors and wireless portable LED projectors with Android interfaces.

    If you've ever wanted a large format interactive whiteboard you can fit in your bag and set up in minutes, you will definitely want to read our sneak preview of what we'll be showing at BETT!

    Interactive (Portable) Whiteboards & Accessories

    We have two products that will be released in the very near future that will let you turn any flat surface into a touch-sensitive interactive whiteboard up to 120" in size!

    41sM6Lff2uLacer_s1383whne_front_right_side_angle

    The first to be released is the Acer Smart Touch Kit, which is compatible with a number of Acer projectors (U5520B, U5320W, U5220, S1383WHne (pictured above), S1283Hne, S1283e). It's a  dongle that fits onto the projector, along with an infrared sensor that you put on your projection surface, but there are a lot of features packed into this device! Although the projectors themselves are not portable the Smart Touch Kit turns any flat surface into a whiteboard with a 10-point touch screen, meaning large groups can all use it at the same time. It's also finger touch compatible, so you don't need to buy a load of expensive accessories to use it.

     

     

    Ultra Short Throw Large Format Displays

    philips_screeneo_hdp2510_full_hd_home1

    Inspire students, parents and staff alike with large dynamic digital displays in your reception area, corridors, staff room, dining hall or classrooms. The real unique feature is how close this projector can sit to the wall and still be able to project a huge 120" image on any wall (even a coloured wall) so you are maximising space in small areas.

    The Philips Screeneo 2.0 offers a Full HD display and 2000 lumens. Since the Screeneo sits so close to your projection surface, those 2000 lumens go much further, giving you an ultra bright display that can be seen in any light conditions. It features automatic colour correction technology, meaning you can even project onto most coloured walls without having to worry about image quality!

    Wireless Projectors

    Projectors are evolving beyond simply being pass through devices - the new breed of projectors have WiFi, inbuilt Android OS (that works with Apple products too!) and onboard memory so you can save files and apps onto the projector. This means you don't even need a PC or laptop to project from, just set up and go! What's more, projectors such as the Pico Genie M550 Plus and the Qumi Q3 Plus (pictured below) which we'll be exhibiting at BETT, have long battery lives (the M550 Plus has up to 3 hours) so you can take a whole lesson without a single wire in sight!

    medium_vivitek_q3_plus_black_left_back_hero

    Also at the show will be wireless dongles that turn any projector into a wireless projector that connect to your iPad, android device or laptop (Win 7 and 8).

    The Vivitek Qumi Q6 will also be at the show along with its bigger brother the Qumi Q7 with wireless dongle.

    Full HD Portable LED Projector: Vivitek Qumi Q8

    The long awaited, record-breaking Qumi Q8 will also be available to pre-order at the show. Its tiny size defies belief and it offers an amazing 1000 lumens and is the smallest Full HD (1080p) LED projector in the world.

    Ultra Portable Short Throw Projectors

    k138st_04

    The Acer K138ST is the latest in ultra portable short throw projection so you can get a bigger image close up to the wall. If you are tight on space  in your classroom then short throw projection is a must! The K138ST benefits from an 800 lumen LED light source and offers phenomenal value, meaning it is a quality budget option.

  • Just Released: The New M550 Plus Portable Projector Perfect All Rounder for Business or Pleasure

    The M550 Plus comes with a keyboard (with integrated mouse) and a remote control!

    The Pico Genie M550 burst onto the scene earlier this year as the world's brightest battery/mains powered HD LED projector with an astonishing 650 Lumen lightshow and some seriously impressive hardware. If you thought that was impressive though, you ain't seen nothing yet! The Pico Genie M550 Plus, the big brother of the M550, offers the same 650 Lumen punch in the same sleek and ultra portable frame with a whole host of extra features that make it a world leader in ultra portable projectors!

    The new M550 Plus really is the ultra portable projector to beat at the moment with features to tick every box for most users whether its business or pleasure. The image performance is still excellent and easily capable of an 80” – 100” diagonal image or 2 meters wide in a normally lit room.

    m550_24__4As standard the original M550 came with Android OS so you can download any app from the Play store, wireless mirroring for almost every device, every connectivity option you could want, 8GB of internal memory, 3D and much more.

    The Pico Genie M550 projectors  are also a much shorter throw than comparative LED portable projectors which means you can place the projector much closer to the wall and get a much larger image. This is an ideal way to ensure you get the biggest image out of the projector especially if you are tight on space or using it in a meeting room.

    The new M550 Plus now adds a much needed portable wireless keyboard with an integrated mouse (and still includes the radio remote control as well) allowing you to easily control the onboard media interface and type text. You can download your favourite app directly onto the projector making this the ideal choice for games, movies, music or business requirements such as Powerpoint, Word, and Excel.

    Apps like Netlfix, Showreel or Kodi are very popular for instant home cinema use right now and in some ways you can think of the projector as one of the new popular Android boxes with a built in projector that are popping up everywhere for watching TV. The wireless keyboard also makes it much easier to setup your Wi-Fi and other settings on the device.

    Another favourite feature on the new model is the Apple iOS mirroring feature which means what you see on your iPhone, iPad or Mac is what you get on the projector. Wireless connectivity can sometimes be a pain to setup so this whole process has been simplified on the M550 Plus which means using the M550 Plus is now a doddle. As with the standard M550 model, you can also easily connect to other devices like Android or Windows devices via the myriad of wireless options.img_8454-1_2

    The battery is also now more efficient than before, now boasting 3 eco modes and guarantees up to 3 hours battery usage whether you’re out on the African plains, in a high-powered business meeting or simply want to watch the football or a blockbuster movie.

    Finally, the new model also weighs in at a lighter weight and is 100 grams lighter than the previous M550 model and is can easily be carried anywhere.

    The only thing to drop off the new model that was on the old model is there is no longer an AV RCA (red, white, yellow) cable connections or VGA cables (it does still have a VGA port, though) as these are now fast becoming outdated cables and have been replaced by wireless options or HDMI connections.

    It's an amazing piece of kit, and a clear leader in its price bracket. Drop it into any situation and its crisp display, powerful 3 watt speakers, amazing connectivity options and mighty battery mean it can handle anything, anywhere, anytime. If you're looking for a versatile projector that has enough bells and whistles to satisfy almost every user from the businessman to the hardcore tech fan while still being simple and accessible enough for even a novice to use, the M550 Plus is highly recommended.
